The Okapi is a relative of the giraffe, and was first discovered
in the dense rain forest of Africa. The velvety coat is a deep burnt
sienna color with beautiful white striping on the legs and rear. As
she walks through the rain forest's abundant tropical plants and flowers,
she casually turns back to see if her baby is following her.
This large-scale oil painting is painted on a gallery-wrapped canvas.
The image continues on all four sides. Okapi has been on exhibit
at the San Diego Natural History Museum, and at the San Diego Safari Park.
